My friend in India took and sent this picture today. Does something look funny?
Hint – observe the manufactured and expiry dates. It says manufactured in 04/2016 even though we are now in 2015. Expiry date shows as 03/2018

 The product is from Vishal Pharmaceutical laboratories (phone # 731-272-2935) in Indore. Their website is not hosted. lists them here.

I have reached out to their email address listed on the product to learn what they have to say. I will keep this post updated with their response.

A gift – One word domains available for registering

I have created a program that identifies domain names that are still available for registration at reg fee direct from registrars. As it is finding names that are dictionary words / names / readable names, I am planning to list them here at the blog, free for you to register. Happy domaining.

Google the names to find their meanings: – plural of sub ledger – small hills near sea shore – Stone ornaments on pillars and also plural of Patera – code used for cataloging – has a Wikipedia page – last name


Today I finally acquired domain.

In 1998 when I registered, the domain was also available. Later I saw it being registered by 2 other people before being dropped off by them.

Please use the contact me form if you are interested in domain.

Missing my Lingam

Shiva Linga / Siva Lingam

Siva Linga / Shiva Lingam

On the morning of July 9th I prayed with my shiva lingam. On the morning of July 10th 2014, the lingam was missing. It was in the pooja (prayer) room in our home in Madipakkam, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. I am troubled to know someone would pick it up from inside the pooja room. It has been my constant companion for 27 years. I hope if anyone see’s it or knows its whereabouts, please let me know. It is 1 inch in height and 1 inch in width at the broadest part. We have put up posters surrounding our home in hopes of finding anyone who can recognize it and contact us. Attached is the picture. Any help would be great. Thank you.
